So much and you’re ready to go and we’ve got you on board, which is fantastic. Today, we’re gonna just have a little chat about some of the things that, you know, Soe loves to treat and she’s so passionate about and that she would love to help you with in the practice.
So Soe Tell me a little bit about, and tell the people at home, about what you love to do with Chinese Medicine. Thanks, Sheena. I’m passionate about all that though I love Chinese medicine. It’s been so amazing studying it. I think some of the main things that I’ve been noticing is that there’s so many small symptoms that people just brush off or they don’t think that’s a problem and there’s a lot. Things like bloating, fatigue, even just feeling heavy getting out of bed in the morning Stress – overwhelming stress emotions like having a short-fuse and you can’t deal with it. Grumpy, you’re grumpy all the time. Is it affecting your relationship? Yeah, I think a lot of people will be nodding at home saying, “Yes, that’s me.” Or gentler things like period pain and cycle irregularities.
Yep, add all that up and you know There’s so many people that have them, so we think that maybe it’s normal, but Chinese Medicine looks at everything on a whole Everything should be working in a cycle that shouldn’t be having all these little symptoms that we just think are normal so I think understanding that and Yeah, so it’s one of those things in Chinese medicine that as you know … all those little symptoms create a disharmony, a really clear pattern for us in Chinese Medicine That we can fix; it just it’s really easy for us to fix but maybe not so much when it comes to Western Medicine, right? It might all seem like disjointed. And I know that I can see that and I can put that into a pattern and you can understand that which means that I can help you with those things; things that you don’t need to like deal with it on a daily basis.

You can see Denmark’s common wind turbine windmills nevertheless you get here there … by air, land or sea.
Today, we have thirty percent of all our electrical energy stemming from renewable, mainly wind and also biomass. On the roads of Copenhagen, the Dane’s commitment to living and working much more sustainably … has actually come to be part of their nationwide society. As the majority of various other Copenhageners, I use my bicycle daily to go back as well as forth to the town hall. To accelerate the shift to more sustainable EV electric vehicles, the government has actually suspended it hurts brand-new car tax obligation on EV electrical cars, which can be as high as a hundred eighty percent for some carbon burning vehicles. We had a really difficult wake-up call back in nineteen seventy-three when really we had a dilemma, an oil dilemma. During that time, we were ninety-nine percent depending on imported nonrenewable fuel sources. So it turned so bad that individuals were prohibited to drive their personal cars and trucks on Sundays. Now, as Denmark’s Minister of Environment and Power, Connie Hedegaard will certainly be chairing the Police officer fifteen environment modification debates.
She’s wishing Denmark’s success in lowering it’s carbon exhausts would translate to the rest of the globe. We have had a growth price of nearly eighty percent in our economic climate since nineteen eighty in Denmark. At the very same time, we have actually taken care of keep our energy consumption almost secure. While the rest of the globe concerns Cop fifteen to discover just how to reduce its carbon footprint, the people of a tiny Danish island called Samso currently have. In the previous 10 years, they’ve mosted likely to a hundred percent renewable resource and have actually lowered their carbon footprint by a hundred and forty-seven percent. We desire individuals to remain to consume power however they should be aware of where the energy comes from. For the previous 10 years, Soren Hermansen has actually turned his agricultural area on Samso island into an energy experiment for the rest of the nation. It is currently the talk of the sustainability world. Well, the truly convincing element was that you could in fact conserve money. The environment or the environmental influence was simply sort of a silver lining effect of it.
Land based wind turbine windmills care for every one of Samso’s local energy needs. Their neighborhood financial investment in offshore wind generator windmills allows them to sell power back to the landmass … to balance out the island’s transportation expenses which still depend upon oil. It’s not simply pure concept. It is manageable and sensible life. It’s not that difficult. The majority of the remedies that we require, they exist currently … and if you utilize them, you can conserve cash. Copenhagen’s mayor, Klaus Bondam, is building a lot more bike lanes and bridges as well as intending to convert the city’s fleet of cars and trucks to all EV electric automobiles as part of Copenhagen’s plan of attack to come to be the globe’s eco-metropolis by twenty fifteen. It’s in our nerves or in our genes that we have to have an understanding that you can in fact hurt your environments if you do not believe concerning what you are doing.
Denmark is launching one of the initial nationwide EV electrical automobile networks. The very first public fee areas are being mounted at the Police fifteen environment adjustment seminar website. Delegates as well as visitors will also be able to lease EV electrical cars by the hr or the day at billing areas throughout the city. Secondly, we provide complimentary car parking for EV electric cars and trucks. I purchased my first EV electric cars and truck in 2 thousand and also 5. 2 months later, I purchased an additional one for my better half. Peter Christensen and also his wife are component of a European union expediency study on the practicality of making the button to EV electric cars. Don’t have to … respect the gear. It’s just forwards and also backwards … it’s extremely simple. In addition to getting EV electrical autos, the Christensen household has a ten year government-backed mortgage on their very own one megawatt wind turbine windmill for powering their autos, all of their other family needs and also to market power back to their utility business. So in order to accommodate a larger percentage of wind production, we have to find a storage for the electrical power to level it out.
If we store the unpredictable wind power in batteries, why not put four wheels beneath the battery and after that you have the EV electric cars and truck. Closing the loophole on renewable energy as well as EV electric cars and truck automobiles is the holy grail of sustainable transportation. DONG Power, the nation’s largest energy company is partnering with Better Place, a global EV electrical vehicle companies on an across the country EV electric automobile network of charge areas as well as battery changing stations, to additionally decrease Denmark’s car and tiny vehicle discharges, the fastest expanding resource of carbon in the atmosphere. In Denmark, we have a population that’s extremely concentrated on the environment. We have a great deal of wind and consequently the capability to produce renewable resource. Among things we can do is actually to be an instance country and in Copenhagen, to be an example city for other countries and also cities exactly how sustainability can really walk hand in hand with the economic and also economic growth. In Copenhagen, this is Mike Cerre reporting for World TV.
The President: Good early morning. It is an honor for me to join this distinguished team of leaders from countries around the world. We come right here in Copenhagen because environment modification postures a tomb and expanding threat to our individuals. All of you would certainly not be right here unless you– like me– were persuaded that this threat is genuine. This is not fiction, it is science. Unchecked, climate change will present undesirable threats to our safety, our economic climates, and also our planet. This much we understand. The inquiry, then, before us is no longer the nature of the challenge– the inquiry is our ability to meet it. For while the fact of climate adjustment is not unsure, I have to be sincere, as the globe enjoys us today, I think our ability to take cumulative activity is in uncertainty right currently, and also it hangs in the equilibrium. I believe we can act strongly, as well as decisively, when faced with an usual risk.
That’s why I come right here today– not to chat, yet to act. (applause) Currently, as the world’s largest economic situation and also as the world’s 2nd largest emitter, America bears our duty to resolve climate modification, and we plan to fulfill that responsibility. That’s why we have actually renewed our leadership within global climate change arrangements. That’s why we’ve collaborated with other countries to terminate nonrenewable fuel source aids. That’s why we have actually taken strong action in your home– by making historical investments in renewable resource; by placing our individuals to function boosting efficiency in our houses and buildings; and by pursuing detailed regulations to transform to a tidy power economic climate. These reduction actions are enthusiastic, and we are taking them not merely to satisfy international duties. We are persuaded, as a few of you might be encouraged, that altering the method we produce and use energy is necessary to America’s financial future– that it will create numerous new tasks, power new industries, keep us affordable, and also stimulate new advancement.
We’re convinced, for our very own self-involvement, that the method we make use of power, changing it to an extra effective style, is essential to our nationwide security, due to the fact that it aids to decrease our dependence on international oil, and also assists us manage a few of the threats positioned by environment adjustment. So I want this plenary session to recognize, America is going to advance this training course of action to reduce our discharges and also to relocate in the direction of a clean power economic situation, whatever happens below in Copenhagen. We assume it is great for us, along with helpful for the globe. Yet we likewise think that we will certainly all be stronger, all be more secure, all be a lot more protected if we act together. That’s why it remains in our common passion to achieve an international accord in which we agree to certain steps, as well as to hold each various other responsible to specific commitments. After months of talk, after 2 weeks of negotiations, after countless side meetings, bilateral conferences, limitless hrs of discussion amongst negotiators, I think that the pieces of that accord ought to now be clear.
First, all significant economic situations should put ahead decisive nationwide activities that will certainly reduce their exhausts, and start to improve on climate change. I’m delighted that much of us have actually already done so. Nearly all the major economic climates have actually advanced legit targets, significant targets, enthusiastic targets. As well as I’m certain that America will certainly fulfill the commitments that we have actually made: cutting our discharges in the variety of 17% by 2020, and by even more than 80% by 2050 according to final regulation. Second, we have to have a device to review whether we are maintaining our dedications, and exchange this information in a transparent manner. These measures require not be invasive, or infringe upon sovereignty. They must, nevertheless, make sure that an accord is credible, and that we’re living up to our commitments. Without such liability, any contract would be vacant words on a web page.
I don’t recognize just how you have a global arrangement where all of us are not sharing details and also ensuring that we are meeting our dedications. That doesn’t make feeling. It would certainly be a hollow triumph. Number 3, we need to have financing that helps creating nations adapt, particularly the least developed as well as most susceptible nations to climate modification. America will certainly be a component of fast-start financing that will increase to $10 billion by 2012. And the other day, Assistant Hillary Clinton, my Secretary of State, made it clear that we will take part in a global initiative to set in motion $100 billion in funding by 2020, if– as well as just if– it becomes part of a broader accord that I have just described.
Mitigation. Transparency. Financing. It’s a clear formula– one that accepts the principle of common but set apart feedbacks and respective capacities. As well as it amounts to a substantial accord– one that takes us farther than we have ever before preceded as a worldwide community. I just want to say to this plenary session that we are running short on schedule. As well as now, the inquiry is whether we will move forward with each other or split apart, whether we favor posturing to action.
I make certain that several consider this an incomplete framework that I just described. No nation will certainly get every little thing that it wants. There are those developing countries that want help without strings attached, and also no responsibilities relative to transparency. They assume that the most innovative nations need to pay a greater rate; I comprehend that. There are those advanced nations who believe that establishing countries either can not absorb this help, or that will certainly not be held responsible properly, which the world’s fastest-growing emitters ought to bear a higher share of the worry. We understand the geological fault due to the fact that we have actually been imprisoned by them for several years.
These worldwide discussions have actually basically happened currently for almost 2 decades, and also we have extremely little to show for it apart from an increased acceleration of the climate modification sensation. The moment for talk is over. This is the lower line: We can accept this accord, take a significant action forward, remain to fine-tune it as well as build upon its foundation. We can do that, and everybody that is in this room will certainly be part of a historic undertaking– one that makes life better for our kids as well as our grandchildren. Or we can choose hold-up, dropping back into the same divisions that have actually stood in the means of action for several years. And we will certainly be back having the exact same stale debates month after month, time after time, perhaps years after years, all while the threat of environment modification expands till it is permanent.
Ladies and also gents, there is no time at all to waste. America has actually made our selection. We have actually charted our program. We have actually made our commitments. We will do what we say. Now I believe it’s the time for the countries and individuals of the globe to come together behind an usual function. We prepare to obtain this done today– but there has to be activity on all sides to acknowledge that it is better for us to act than to speak; it’s better for us to choose activity over inactiveness; the future over the past– and also with nerve and confidence, I think that we can fulfill our duties to our individuals, and also the future of our planet. Thank you extremely a lot. (applause).
